Minorities Affairs Minister Avishay Braverman said on Wednesday that Israel must accept the outlines of the previous building freeze in order to reach negotiations with the Palestinian Authority over security and border issues and to avoid international isolation. The comments were made in an apparent reference to calls for the government to allow continued building in Jerusalem in the event that a freeze is passed for building projects in the West Bank.

If the government does not act, it may find itself with an Arab nation-state west of the Jordan River, Braverman stated in an interview with Israel Radio.

He added during the interview, if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not overcome domestic political considerations to implement the freeze, he might endanger the continued existence of the State of Israel into the future.
